Recorded LIVE 2007, Thetis Island BC Canada – Revised and re-released 2012 Letting go – how far can it take you? is the question Cynthia Bourgeault poses and explores in an analysis of the journey which we begin at birth and continue to the death of the body. Drawing particularly from Helen Luke’s book Old Age: Journey into Simplicity as well as John S. Donne’s Four Consents, Cynthia offers a transformative alternative to the North American obsession with staying young, fearing aging, and denying death. As we practice letting go of our attachments we discover that all is tenderly held in God’s love and in wholeness. The welcoming practice, another tool of transformation, is also discussed.
